I fell off again. I’ve been working crazy hours and too tired when I get home to post. Plus, working all that time makes for a very dull existence. Still, here I am. I was going to post this past Monday (as is my late habit), but I awakened Sunday morning at 4:00 a.m. with the bedroom ceiling spinning like a carousel. So pretty and so nauseating, but still not fatal. To deal with the problem, I went back to sleep. Avoidance is a lifelong gift. I finally gave up at 8:00 a.m. and drove myself to the urgent care clinic and got some antibiotics that will destroy any good bacterial cultures in my digestive system, but I learned that vertigo is no longer a symptom, but a disease. That, and it usually only lasts about a week. Oh, joy. Thankfully, mine has worn off now. Life is so exciting!
I got a snarky comment on one of my Pissyfairy posts. It went like this “Bullsh*t! There is no such thing.” I was horrified. How dare that nameless person say there is no such thing. She visits me all the time. I did not respond because, honestly, I had no idea whether someone really took their time to comment on a silly blog post or if it was something more sinisterly weird. I hope (ever the optimist) that other people have lives and won’t spend their time reading posts that annoy them. Why would anyone do that?
Thank you so much to those of you who checked in on me to make sure I was still a viable carbon based life form. The jury is still out, but I’m doing really well!!
Now, for the knitting and spinning. OK. Let’s move along shall we? We are in a bit of a drought. Nothing like other parts of the country (you out there Marianne???), but still everything is dying and brown and ugly. Here is my front yard. I did have the decency to cut down the dead purple coneflowers which just blighted the landscape further.
It really doesn’t look as awful in the picture as it looks in real life. How’d I do that? Usually, my pics make the objects in it look worse. The only flowers left are the lantana in the hanging planter on the front porch.
Have a great Labor Day!!
